The cornucopia of fall vegetables are making their way to the market. The delicata and several other squash varieties have been there for a while, but we have roasting pumpkins coming in. So good to make into a soup, using the pumpkin itself as a bowl!
Our sweet potatoes are finally making an appearance. The first of these gems are being found in some of Chase’s creations. Here is Dori with a fine-looking specimen.

They are just coming in and will be available in the main produce section by the end of the month. These tubers are so excellent roasted with a drizzle of your best olive oil and sea salt.
The pigs are hoping all these goodies don’t sell so they will be tossed into their fields and woods before the season ends.
But the pigs will happily ‘settle’ for some of these, should they not all be snapped up by day’s end!
Over at the Martin Tract, the flerd is roaming about, feasting on the fall grasses. Our ‘Hopewell East’ photographer, JK, captured the animals by her fence. Thank you JK!

They share the property with the pigs, pastured turkeys and chickens. All can be found basking in the fall sun.
Time to think about shorter days and longer roasts.
